Flyers Beware!

REVIEW UPDATE: I got my Tech Folio Brief a month or so ago. I love it - but airport security doesn't. I have now taken 7 flights with this bag and airport security has scanned it and wanted to search my bag every single time. It seems that the magnetic strips on the outside pocket look dodgy on the xray machine - some airport security folks have asked me if I am carrying a screwdriver, while others think it's a knife. Either way, as a frequent flyer it's a real pain being stopped and bag-searched on every flight when I'm carrying the tech folio brief. Just wanted to make others aware of this issue.

What I have been waiting for

I carry 2 laptops, iPad, thumb drives, and every charging cable imaginable. This bag is meant for those of us who have a mobile office and can’t afford to be without anything. The bag is comfortable, elegant, and spacious. I have bought many SF products before but this is exactly what I was waiting for. Thanks for solving my mobile office carrying solutions.

A great overall bag with some room for improvement

Overall, I am very happy with this bag as my daily driver. I love the premium feel of the canvas and the leather will only get better looking with age. I find the size to be perfect for my 12.9” iPad Pro with Magic Keyboard. It also fits my Nintendo Switch and a 26oz Yeti Rambler. The “tech folio” portion of the bag has plenty of pockets for chargers, cables, and other miscellaneous items. I like that the inside is a brighter color since it makes things easier to find. I also find the bag to be extremely stable and hasn’t fallen over like my previous bag (I’m coming from a Peak Design Everyday Messenger).

There is some room for improvement though. I wish one of the main compartments lockers was wide enough for a Kindle Voyage. The compartments to the right of the pen pockets are too narrow to fit my Kindle so it instead flops around the slot intended for an iPad. My iPad sits where a laptop would go. If I ever carry my 14” MacBook Pro, I would not have a pocket for my Kindle. The tech folio portion allows for easy visibility of items but the organization feels clunky at best. I would have loved some vertical cable storage options like the Peak Design Tech Pouch. Having the only option for cable storage be zippers is a bit limiting.

Overall, I am very pleased with my bag and would recommend it to others - but I’ll continue my hunt for the perfect bag. Maybe the V2 of this one will be it!

You'll love the extra room in each of the two separate compartments of the Tech Folio Brief.  The generously-sized sections can fit almost everything you'll need on location to get your work done. 


The briefcase section carries your office gear and is deep enough to hold two laptops, a water bottle, several documents — even headphones. It zips open halfway, making it easy to insert and remove the contents. The double zipper pulls can be secured with a small lock if needed. When not full, the soft sides collapse for a compact look. 


The tech folio section has multiple pockets designed to securely store your various electronics and gadgets. It zips open flat to display your tech tool kit.  


When you're working in the field, it's critical to have your complete technology tool kit along.  The tech folio section of the Tech Folio Brief is big enough to keep your arsenal of cords, cables, adapters, etc. tidy and instantly visible. 


The key to staying organized is having everything in its place. Zippered mesh pockets store easy-to-lose gadgets and two soft, protective open pockets store bigger-sized items. You can quickly scan both sides of the folio to pick out the item you need,  and when you're ready to pack up, you can easily see if any piece of gear has been left out. 


Customers who participated in our Next Generation Gear Case Community Design helped develop a collection of products designed to hold tech gear. The Tech Pocket was designed for the Minimalists who needed an extra pocket to carry just a few items, the Tech Folio for the Gadgeteers who carried a bit more tech, and the Tech Folio Plus for Pros whose jobs required more tech gear. 


Each Tech Folio also had padded compartments to hold different sizes of laptops or tablets. When Apple's 16-inch MacBook Pro launched, we designed the Tech Folio 16-inch


The Tech Folio Brief is a super-sized tech folio and a fully functional briefcase for professionals who carry a whole lot of gear to get their work done. 


Keep your waxed canvas Tech Folio Brief looking new by applying wax when you think it needs a little refresh. Although any wax is applicable, you can use Martexin Original Wax which was initially used to coat your canvas bag. 

Gary shows how you can re-wax your bag to keep it looking new, using the Vitesse Cycling Musette as an example. 



If you have the waxed canvas and chocolate leather version of the Tech Folio Brief, Gary shows how you can maintain these materials so they’ll look great over time. We use full grain Roughman Leather for your bag which has oils that respond well to heat.


Although this video is for the AirPods Max Shield Case, the maintenance also applies to your bag.
